Did you know I decorate cakes? Maybe you do and you’ve seen the countless little works of art from my kitchen. Maybe you’re just getting to know me? Well, It is true I have an infinite love for decorating cakes. Just something that sorta comes easily for me. Let me give you a little backstory…
So after son #2 was born I took some Wilton classes to pass some time and hone in on some skills. I’ve pretty much been a cake decorating fool since. Starting with my own little home based & by word of mouth cake business back in our hometown in Southern Ca. After a snowboarding accident shattered my wrist I had to call it quits for a few years on the cakes. 2 surgeries a move to Lake Havasu and lots of time to get my hand sorta working again & I’m starting to add projects back to my agenda.
I love these little creatures I made a few years back.
I finally have the time to dedicate to the cakes without frustration from kiddos at my feet with them finally all in school.
I love a new project all the time. It’s just what I do. I love browsing Pinterest for hours and then pulling ideas together to create a fun replica or one of kind cake. I have a ton of cake decorating supplies but when we moved I had to get rid of a lot. Even when I did have a lot of extra tools I was always finding something off the grid to use as an additional tool or when I didn’t have the money for a new tool, I got super creative and made my own.
Sometimes I can get too giddy with excitement and take on some giant risks for myself as far as cake decorating. I never had another person ever around to help me makes these cakes & sometimes I would be so stuck with the frustration I would finally call the hubs in for another perspective or he would have to run in to help hold something while I was piping another thing on. Countless trips to & from the store for little things I forgot or another bag of powdered sugar. Powdered sugar covered me and kitchen. Always way too hard on myself but looking back even I can’t believe some of the cool things I made, even when I was upset about a cake. All had their little flaws & great points but for each cake I made I hade never made the same thing twice. So far I’m still a beginner each time I make a cake, I just get crafty with what I have in front of me to create some WOW & JOY.
